CMC Spring Valley Conference and Events
Spectacular views create an unforgettable conference venue and amazing experiences at CMC's Spring Valley Campus
Spring Valley, located seven miles south of Glenwood Springs, is an inspiring location. It offers expansive views of the Roaring Fork Valley and a spectacular view of Mt. Sopris. Meeting participants can "get away from it all" in the Colorado Mountains, while staying close to restaurants, shops, galleries and concerts from Glenwood Springs to Aspen.
Flexibility for your group is key. From late May through early-August, the campus can accommodate needs with more than 200 beds, a large cafeteria, recreational spaces, outdoor athletic fields, and a wide selection of meeting spaces.
If you need a space for your meeting, training, or HOA, we can accommodate up to 990 people in a variety of spaces on our campus. Add some catering and you can have your meeting, technology, snacks and lunch all in one day.
Here are just a few examples of what we can do here at Spring Valley:
- Team building, facilitated by a climbing wall and a challenge course right on campus
- Training meetings
- HOA Events
- Birthday Parties
- Weddings and Receptions
- Overnight conferences
- Athletic Camps
Facilities and Event Spaces
Five buildings — the Ascent Center, Calaway Academic Center, Student Center, Quigley Library, and the Outdoor Leadership Center & Field House provide a wide range of options for your event, conference, or meeting. Plus, we have outdoor spaces for sporting activities and events.
Stay overnight! Sopris Hall provides affordable, on-campus housing with all the right amenities.
Dining at Spring Valley
We have many dining options. From formal, catered dinners to outdoor barbecues — whatever you need to fit your event.
